Funeral Services for Fahiym RBG Ali, the fallen and much beloved national minister of information of the New Black Panther Party, will take place on Wednesday, June 4th, at 1PM at the Oglethorpe Funeral Chapel, 607 Kaigler Street, Oglethorpe, Georgia.

Early reports on the shooting said that Ali was gunned down in a drive-by after having had a minor altercation earlier with a stranger! Later reports say that shooter may have been a drug dealer who may well have targeted Ali, viewing him as an obstacle to his new activity in that community.

Imamu Fahiym Olugbala Ali was also serving as the chairman of the People’s Center Council of the Provisional Government of the Republic of New Afrika and as a New Afrikan Legionnaire at the time of his death. He was also a strong voice for reparations.
He was only 41.
